On this episode, we have Randy Fay, the main­tain­er and benev­o­lent dic­ta­tor of the DDEV project, which aims to make local devel­op­ment for PHP-based projects a breeze for indi­vid­u­als and teams.

We talk about the ori­gins of DDEV, as well as its ben­e­fits over local devel­op­ment envi­ron­ments that are mono­lith­ic in nature. Due to how DDEV lever­ages Dock­er behind the scenes, it’s ide­al for PHP-based CMS projects like Dru­pal, Typo3, Word­Press, and app devel­op­ment frame­works like Lar­avel as well.

We go in depth on what those advan­tages are, and how DDEV has ambi­tions to bring the shrink-wrap­ping of project devops to out­side the PHP world as well.

And there’s a spe­cial lit­tle treat at the end for Craft CMS users who want to lever­age DDEV, so tune in!
